Mazda’s stand at the Los Angeles Motor Show 2014, featured many new cars, but the spotlight was mainly focused on the new CX-3, B-segment compact SUV designed to be the “opponent” of the Nissan Juke and the Opel Mokka. The model is equipped with all the best technology package starting with the SKYACTIV engines (two petrol and one diesel), through the materials used for the frame and the transmission. Although the permanent four-wheel drive is an extra.
At the exhibition there was also the renewed Mazda6 and CX-5, the first features new light clusters and grille and a revised interior with higher quality materials and a new infotainment system with a 7 inch screen. The MY2015 Mazda6 will feature the same engines as the current model.
At the stand was also the MX-5, that will be sold in Europe with the SKY-G 1.5 and 2 liter 4 cylinder petrol engines. Both will have a specific tuning for the model. At the booth was also the MX-5 Cup race variant, which will provide customers with a car “ready to race” that will be involved in one-make championships around the world.
